The Monaco GP begins Sunday 26th May at 11pm. Most recently however, Red Bull’s chief motorsport advisor says Ricciardo was deceived into joining Renault by false promises of a much-improved car for 2019.

In the latest instalment of an escalating war of words between Red Bull and Renault, Helmut Marko slammed Renault for failing to deliver on their promises when they supplied engines to Red Bull. That deal resulted in four world titles from between 2010-2013, before ending in acrimony after Renault failed to adapt to the hybrid-turbo era.

Marko said Renault often failed to live up to its own hype, which Ricciardo fell for.

“Renault is good at that,” Marko told Motorsport-Total.

“They showed us charts over and over again, showing the engine will be massive next year. He (Ricciardo) will have just believed it.

“The story should read that he decides in the summer, whether he goes to Ferrari or Mercedes or remains with Red Bull.”
